Update: And it's official, folks.

Some new pricing and launch date info on the LG G-Slate for T-Mobile has emerged, just a couple days away from its expected in-store availability. The highly anticipated tablet from T-Mobile and LG will cost you $529.99 on contract after a $100 mail in rebate and $749.99 at full retail price. The tablet is set to hit stores this Wednesday, April 20. That $529.99 pricing is the same number we saw a few weeks ago. Not surprising, but this is also the same day as the T-Mobile event coming up this Wednseday night in New York City (we'll be there!).

But the new G-Slate isn't the only new Android powered device we'll see this Wednesday. The G2X, T-Mobile's first dual-core powered phone, and the Sidekick 4G will also launch this Wednesday. The Sidekick on contrant will set you back $99.99 after a $50 mail in rebate on a new two year contract. If you don't want to do the contract thing, the phone will cost you $379.99. As for the G2X, the 3D powered cell phone on contract will be $199.99 after a $50 mail in rebate. And again, if you don't do the contract thing, it's gonna cost you $499.99. Whooo... okay, now who's getting what this Wednesday? [TmoNews]

Galaxy tab for $199. An extra $350? Hmmmm. Tough sell

turbofan says:

...seriously? Single core vs. Dual core. 2.2 vs. Honeycomb. Screen size. LG has 3d. And then you have Samsung 's poor build quality and updates. No comparison.

curney says:

The average Joe will only see the difference in screen size. More than twice the price. Tough sell.


To buy or not to buy on a company that might not be around for much longer? hummmm I think not I'll wait

I can't wait until all the tablets come into my best buy so I can play with them. Haha.

ZDriver says:

That's going to be a lot less than a xoom on contract I suppose. Magic would be $499 though, then it would sell sell sell especially with some good commercials.

I was interested in the LG G-Slate when it was announced. But I wanted a wifi only version.

With the announcement of the Asus eeePad Transformer coming late April early May and a potential price point of $499 for the 32GB model, the Transformer is a better deal. For me at least. Even if the 32GB model comes in at $599 or $699 it's a better deal. Having the ability to record or play in 3D, IMHO, is not worth an extra $150-400 over the Transformer.

Of course that could all change once I actually get to play with the G-slate. :)

I'll take door number three... Asus Transformer with same spec's and starts at $399 or $550 with a KB dock + full size USB, SD and an extra 8 hour battery built in the KB.

3D is a joke. A few kids will buy it for a handful of games then get bored. Next.
